A nuclear Iran is a threat to Arabs, not Israel

Recently, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) released a statement clarifying the news circulating about Iran’s Nuclear Program, saying that it “is aware of recent media reports relating to uranium enrichment levels in Iran. Director General @rafaelmgrossi states that the IAEA is discussing with Iran the results of recent Agency verification activities and will inform the IAEA Board of Governors as appropriate.”

Earlier, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States issued a joint statement on the IAEA`s latest report on Iran`s Nuclear Program, saying that it is inconsistent with Iran’s obligations under its Comprehensive Safeguards Agreement.

“Iran’s actions are all the more concerning since it has stopped the implementation of its commitments on transparency and verification under the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action), including implementation of its Additional Protocol, for close to two years,” says the statement in response to the IAEA report, adding that “Iran has also offered no credible answer yet to the IAEA’s outstanding questions as part of the IAEA’s safeguards investigation, despite the adoption of two resolutions on this issue by the Board of Governors last year.”

The four countries called on Iran “to comply with all its legally-binding international obligations under its Comprehensive Safeguards Agreement with the IAEA and to fully cooperate with the Agency in the application of effective safeguards at Fordow.”

These latest developments should ring a bell in the Arab world, not only in Israel, as it is not in the best interest of any Arab country for Iran to have a nuclear bomb.

Arabs have no plans whatsoever to possess nuclear power (and in fact, they will never be allowed to do so). Therefore, in the face of a nuclear Iran, they are the ones who will suffer first and foremost

The Mullah regime will definitely threaten the Arab states with its potential nuclear bomb due to its expansionist policy and its vicious goal to spread/export the so-called “Islamic revolutionary ideology” to its neighbors, and beyond.

A nuclear Iran is not a direct threat to Israel, as the latter does possess a “nuclear stockpile of approximately 90 warheads; while production of plutonium for weapons purposes is thought to be continuing,” although it has “never confirmed or denied possessing nuclear weapons,” according to the House of Commons Library. It is certain that Israel can protect itself from a future Iranian nuclear threat, at the very least just by having the power to retaliate.

But the Arabs have no plans whatsoever to possess nuclear power (and in fact, they will never be allowed to do so). Therefore, in the face of a nuclear Iran, they are the ones who will suffer first and foremost. Iran without nuclear capabilities has already occupied, directly or indirectly, four Arab countries: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen. So what would be the case after becoming a nuclear regime?  

If Iran succeeds in such an endeavor, the Arabs will never stand up, at least in the foreseeable future

Nuclear power in Iran will serve an ideological purpose that will be a scourge on the Arab countries. Therefore, the Arabs need to do their best to prevent Iran from having it. Right now they are unable to do much in that regard due to their weakness and fragmentation. If Iran succeeds in such an endeavor, the Arabs will never stand up, at least in the foreseeable future. For them, nothing is more dangerous for Arabs than a nuclear Mullah.
